Description:
It is simply YUM, fresh, super easy, and wait until you hear of the benefits!
PARSLEY: This herb has so many health benefits. Parsley is rich in the beauty Vitamins A and C, folic acid, and has flavonoids that act as antioxidants- which put the kibosh on free radicals creating damage to the cells. Parsley is also very high in iron, and the high vitamin C content assists the absorption of iron. It is a blood purifier and helps to kill bacteria in the body. Parsley is an excellent digestion restorative remedy. It improves the digestion of proteins and fats, and because of its high enzyme content, parsley benefits digestive activity and elimination. It also helps cleanse the liver of toxins and rejuvenates it.
If that weren’t enough, parsley is also high in B12, chlorophyll and essential fatty acids- and helps balance hormones in women! Now I bet you think of parsley as more than that a dinky garnish you push to the side of your plate.

Iron and Calcium Supplements
Do you take both iron and calcium supplements? If so, it is best to take them at different times. Iron and calcium can interfere with each other's absorption. For more information, talk to your local health store staff, naturopath, or doctor. Maria Carr
